IR Magazine has revealed the short lists for the IR Magazine Awards – Greater China 2017, with winners to be announced at the event in Hong Kong on December 7.
Making up the short lists for some of the most coveted categories of the night – best overall investor relations and best investor relations officer – are big names such as last year’s best overall IR (large cap) winner, China Telecom, as well as firms such as AIA Group, China Resources Beer, Far East Consortium International, Kerry Logistics Network, Pacific Basin Shipping and China Unicom, which last year walked away with two awards.
The nominees and winners of these categories, as well as the awards for best corporate governance, best in region and best in sector are all chosen via research and interviews with the investment community.
